GARS: Generate A Rough Surface

Presentation

The software "GARS" can generate a rough surface from the parameters given by the user. It uses a inverse Fourier transform and a pseudorandom number generator. Constrasted rough surfaces can be generated. By adjusting the parameters, the generated surface can be similar to Earth relief, a microscopic surface, etc. By changing the seeds of the pseudorandom number generator, you can get a set of surfaces with statistically-identical properties. GARS can also add a general tendency (slope) and a sinusoid to the rough surface.

You can test GARS on line and download the source code.
